 Boko Haram Landmine Kills Seven Borno Hunters, Injures 19

No fewer than seven hunters were blown apart on Tuesday by landmine about 30 kilometres away from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

The landmine, which scattered the vehicles of local hunters searching for suspected Boko Haram members, who had rustled cows from communities in Jere Local Government Area of the state, also got 19 other hunters injured.

Both Senator Kashim Shettima, representing Borno Central in the Senate, and Ahmed Satomi, representing Jere Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, confirmed the incident on Wednesday.
